A young person unable to walk and sitting on someone’s lap. Across the room, FATHER SOLANUS CASEY prays for him and asks the boy to walk over to him. He does walk – for the first time ever. Able to foretell events about to happen? Praying for an orchard of fruit threatened by frost – and all was preserved while other orchards surrounding had damaged crop.
This is our eXTRA show – part 2 introducing you to the beautiful story of a gentle soul — a humble, faithful, obedient Capuchin with limited priestly faculties… yet he was the doorman who spawned faith, hope and love wherever his order sent him.
